Japanese meteorologist and climatologist Syukuro Manabe, German oceanographer and climate modeler Klaus Hasselmann and Italian theoretical physicist Giorgio Parisi won the award in 2021.
Manabe and Hasselmann, who “make a physical model of the Earth’s climate, accurately predict global warming and measure its variability”, are reported to “make a groundbreaking contribution to the understanding of complex systems”, while Parisi “from his discovery of the interaction of fluctuations and disorder in physical systems from atomic to planetary scales”.
